Schools & Seminars
University of the Nations Schools
The Discipleship Training School (YWAM-DTS) including the field assignment is a prerequisite for all other U of N courses. The DTS is the gateway into the seven Faculties and various Centres of the U of N. Students may apply to any DTS, offered presently at 400 centres in 101 nations and 60 languages around the world.
Once the student has completed the DTS, he or she may participate in the wide variety of courses the U of N offers. These courses are designed to equip the student to serve God more effectively in fulfilling the Great Commission. A student does not need to be registered in a degree programme to take U of N courses for which he or she is qualified. Students may take schools in any of the various Faculties and locations that best fit their ministry goals. Of course, to be admitted to a U of N course, an applicant must provide proof of the ability to do university-level course work in the language in which the course is offered.
Students are encouraged to be obedient to the call of God as they seek the equipping necessary to pursue their future. This approach to education offers the student the flexibility to pursue those areas of study which are beneficial for reaching their life goals.
All U of N courses are given a special number preceded by a three letter designator which indicates the Faculty or Centre/Institute that offers the course:
|ATS||Faculty of Arts and Sports|
|CHR||Faculty of Christian Ministries|
|CMC||Faculty of Communication|
|CNH||Faculty of Counselling & Health Care|
|EDN||Faculty of Education|
|HMT||Faculty of Humanities & International Studies|
|SCI||Faculty of Science & Technology|
|DEV||Community Development Centre|
|DSP||Centre for Discipleship Training Schools|
|FAM||Family Resource Centre|
|STU||Student Mobilization Centre|
These letters are followed by a three-digit number which indicates the kind of course it is, within the Faculty or Centre:
|Course Type||Course No.|
|Special Non Credit Seminars and Courses||000-099|
|Introductory undergraduate-level courses||200-299|

|Graduate courses and seminars||500-599|
|Graduate capstone courses, Master’s thesis||600-699|
Courses that are offered through two Faculties or Centres are designated by letters for both (ATS/CMC 255), and a description of the course is included in both sections. Courses listed on this website are subject to change. Information on additions to the course offerings are available through U of N International Registrar Offices, International Faculty or Centre Offices.
University of the Nations Seminars
The U of N offers an extensive year-round seminar programme including seminars, workshops and conferences. Some of these offer academic credit and often are open to the public as well as U of N students.
For participants to receive U of N credit, the seminar must last a minimum of one week (five learning days) and be registered through the appropriate Faculty or Centre. Participants desiring credit must register for that purpose and pay the required student registration fee. Students may attend any number of seminars and workshops that offer 1-6 credits each prior to completion of a DTS. Only 6 seminar credits may be taken in any one course. Students may use seminar credits toward a U of N degree upon approval of the Academic Advisor of the appropriate Faculty in which the degree programme is offered (see Seminar Credits section later for conditions). Credit for a full learning week of a seminar and a course cannot be obtained simultaneously.
